8th Annual LEAD Conference: There's More To Explore in Virtual Girl Scouting
There's More to Explore in Virtual Girl Scouting at L.E.A.D. 2020!
The 8th Annual L.E.A.D. (Leader Enrichment and Development) Conference encourages you to lead your troop into the new Girl Scout year while learning tips to manage our current COVID-19 situation with virtual or in-person meetings and activities.
L.E.A.D. is an opportunity for GSSNV volunteers, both new and experienced, to hear the latest news about what’s happening in Girl Scouting, build leadership skills, and see familiar faces we've all missed over the past few months. You'll also receive great training (provided by fellow volunteers!) vital to a successful Girl Scouting experience. L.E.A.D. will be held online so join us from the comfort of your home on Saturday, October 3, 2020.
